A short note on reform

GA secede billboardReforming the USA will not work for one simple reason. Those most in need of reform control all the institutional avenues to reform (the presidency, the Congress, the courts, the bureaucracy, the banks, the media, the educational system, etc.). They will not allow themselves to be “reformed” out of their power, position, and wealth. It is that simple, really.

Thus the people have three options: 1) do nothing and become serfs; 2) foment a bloody revolution; or 3) secede. I prefer number 3 (which may also turn bloody, depending on the reactions of the “powers that be”). But one way or the other, you can forget about reform. “Taking back America” and “Restoring the Constitution” are non-starters.
